Skin Aqua UV Watery Gel SPF 50+PA+++

The weather has been rather cold and gloomy lately, but sun protection is still very important during the day! We often neglect sun protection when we are indoors and also when it’s cloudy thinking there’s probably not much UV. However, did you know that long term exposure to the sun’s UV rays especially UVA can be damaging to our skin, causing our skin to age prematurely? UVA rays can cause damage the elastin fibres & collagen of our skin causing it to sag and droop. Furthermore, the skin will experience wrinkles, fine lines and pigmentation. Scary! (ºДº)

Skin Aqua UV Watery Gel SPF 50+PA+++
One of the latest sun protection products by Mentholatum SunPlay is the Skin Aqua UV Watery Gel SPF 50+PA+++, a watery-light and breathable daily sunscreen that protects your skin 16 times better against UV rays and premature aging. It is formulated with the new Solarex-3 technology to provide users with photo stable protection against  the sun’s damaging UV rays which is proven to resist photo-degradation 3x more effectively.

  • High UV Protection: SPF 50+ and PA++++ (formulated with Solarex-3 technology with photo stability for long lasting broad spectrum UV Protection; highest PA offers 16x better protection against UVA Rays)
  • Watery, Light Texture: Water-light texture that leaves a weightless feel and matte finish

One thing I find useful is that the Skin Aqua UV Watery Gel can be used for both body and face. In fact, you can even use it as a makeup base!

Light, watery texture
The Skin Aqua UV Watery Gel comes in a plastic bottle with a screw cap and nozzle-type dispenser, same as most other Skin Aqua products. You'll have to shake the bottle before dispensing the sunscreen onto your hand/skin. It has a light, watery texture that is easily absorbed into the skin without leaving any greasy or oily texture. There is also a slight floral scent which I find very nice and soothing, which dissipates quickly.

The Skin Aqua UV Watery Essence SPF50+PA++++ (50g) retails at RM 37.90 and is available at all leading pharmacies and major supermarket outlets.

I love Biore's Aqua Rich Watery Essence sunscreen because of its lightweight texture but I think it might be breaking me out. I like that this has aloe and vitamin C in it. Thanks for the review!

HerYuan: Nope, not sticky at all. :D

The Daily Dolly: I find that Biore has really improved on the fragrance of their sunscreens! I actually don't even mind smelling it, haha!

Wunderstar: Yeah, regardless of how non-harmful or natural the ingredients are in these products, I think some skin types will still not be suitable to use certain products. Maybe you can try a lighter/different formula sunscreen. :)
